Bad Service - Libretto's on Ossington

Besides it being slow, what was "bad" about the service? Just that everyone was helping out with bringing you food, and a management decision to have 17% be the default on the handheld?

Anyone been to Cluny in the Distillery yet?

So you think everyone on Yelp is a friend or family, but that Chowhounders are unbiased reviews? So many of us on here are in the business, etc….

Instant Breakfast Cereal

Tim Horton's oatmeal is surprisingly good. I get it plain (you can get it with fruit or brown sugar/maple topping, but I like the nutty taste of plain oatmeal) and then chop up a banana in it that I bring on my own. When you put the banana slices in right away, they warm up and melt in a delightful way.

has anyone eaten at Pai Northern Thai Kitchen?

Got a chance to go tonight. No line up (we had no reservations), were seated right away. Service was friendly, informative and helpful (we asked for recommendations, etc). We had the green curry in the coconut (and scraped up the coconut, thanks for the tip!), the pad thai and pad graw pow. Perfect amount of food to share for two of us. No liquor license, but after the weekend I had, that was okay by me ;) Total cost was $50 after tax, but before tip. Oh and the decor was great! I'll definitely be back!!

If anybody is still interested in Summerlicious 2014, menus posted at...

Definitely book online for Momofuku, for Winterlicious that was way easier. Their reservations open at 9 am on the 19th, so standard business day hours.

Please help me prioritise: Business trip to Toronto

Go to Daisho for their terrace, has a great lunch menu and right in the sun.

El Caballito Tequila y Tacos

I've been here twice. The first time, I just had drinks. We sat at the bar, the bartender was very friendly, in that "King Street tourist" kind of way (as in, appealing more to someone probably not from Toronto). I went back a few days later because I wanted to try the tacos - sat at the bar - the bartender says, "oh! You're back!" to me...but I was with a different man...so maybe someone should teach him Service 101: Subtly. Anyway, the food was good, but I still found service off. I'd give it one more try and then average out the experiences.

Travel (often) to Toronto. Can't miss restaurants cab ride from Yorkville?

C'est What has just as good a selection as Volo, no? (I know that's not the area OP is asking for)

Anthony Rose New Restaurant - Fat Pasha

Exact opposite of our experience! She gave us no helpful suggestions, sort of just looked at us when we asked for direction, and didn't listen to what we were saying we wanted to eat. We had to wait at the beginning for 30 minutes for our reservation, but then everything else went very fast.

Anthony Rose New Restaurant - Fat Pasha

I was there on Tuesday, we liked the food but thought the service wasn't that great. It was an "okay" review on my end - I'd give it another shot, but I'm not yet recommending it to anyone else.

Momofuku Shoto (long)

Yeah, I think with Noodle Bar it's about strategic ordering. Not everything is good, but once you understand what you like and what you don't, it gets better.

I find Daisho offers the things that Shoto misses on. Have you been there yet?

Momofuku Shoto (long)

I've done the $95/person one. I haven't had the longer one, so I can't compare. But my experience was wonderful, and I was beyond full afterwards.

Momofuko Milk Bar

I don't think they use gelatin, I quickly saw an ingredient list because I was curious re: gluten free (for a friend), and the only allergen I saw was "dairy", whereas gelatin would flag as non-vegetarian, I think...might be something to look into (if anyone is wondering, Double Double is gluten free but cereal milk is not)

Momofuko Milk Bar

The cup was $5.25, and the topping was an additional 75 cents

Momofuko Milk Bar

So went in and had the swirl, with the topping (it's corn flake topping).

I think next time I wouldn't get it swirled, because the Double Double overpowers the subtly of the cereal milk. The cereal milk flavour + the topping tastes literally like frozen cereal, pretty interesting. The double double tasted EXACTLY like a coffee, so if you aren't into coffee, I'd skip it. It seemed like a small serving, but I was stuffed afterwards. Melted very quickly, so don't think you can pick it up and get very far without starting to eat it.

Momofuko Milk Bar

You actually get it out of Noodle Bar, not in Milk Bar (but you can do take away, or whatever you would call taking an ice cream to go!). They also sell pints to go. They have two flavours right now, "Double Double" (so - flavoured like a coffee w double cream and double sugar), and the famous cereal milk. Or you can get a swirl of both of them together!!

Just be sure to let it sit out for 1 hour before consuming, to thaw from being in the "Milk Bar Fridge"!

Perhaps. I'd just hate for you to get turned off by the texture and then think you won't like the cake. I'm confident you have enough knowledge from all of us now to make an informed decision :)

The new limited edition Ritz Cookie (a ritz cracker + cookie in one) is really great.

Momofuko Milk Bar

Yeah, I have to admit most people don't like them - that's why I didn't think it would be a good litmus test for the cake, which most people DO like.

If anyone ever buys truffles and doesn't like them, send them my way. I love them <3

Momofuko Milk Bar

The truffles(or I like what you called them "cake balls") taste nothing like the cake…most people don't love the truffle (I do but I like the texture), whereas the birthday cakes sell fast. Reserve ahead of time is my advice…

The Stop Night Market - disastrous ticketing process again this year

Says someone who has clearly never worked at a restaurant that participates in 'licious....

Momofuko Milk Bar

They have two flavours in the Toronto Milk Bar right now, Birthday Cake and Dulce De Leche, so if you are thinking of ordering items from Toronto, go to the menu items for the Toronto location on the milk bar website.

The Old Toronto Restaurants you make the wishes for the comeback

I loved Eddy's up in Thornhill, the sister restaurant to Senior's. Their chef salad was the bomb.

While all those other options may be better for Dim Sum lunch, some of us live downtown and any option to have dim sum downtown is always welcome...
